Sequel Systems Launches SequelMed Channel Partner Program

Program Delivers Unique and Exclusive Benefits for Organizations Facilitating the Transition from Practice Management Solutions to Complete Electronic Medical Records
Melville, NY––August 3, 2009––Sequel Systems, Inc., a dynamic, service-oriented healthcare technology company, today announced the SequelMed Channel Partner Program for billing companies and healthcare organizations working with physicians looking to transition from physician practice management solutions to comprehensive electronic medical record (EMR) systems. SequelMed, the company’s all-in-one practice management, document management and medical records solution, is uniquely designed to integrate seamlessly with practice management solutions, resulting in fast and easy implementation that allows Partners to create new opportunities for themselves while delivering added value to their clients.
The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act was enacted not only to stimulate the economy, but also provide physician practices with support for implementing EMRs. The health IT component of the legislation––the HITECH Act––appropriates $17 billion in incentive programs to encourage health care organizations to adopt EHRs and reward those who can demonstrate use of a certified system. The stimulus package has made the need for billing companies to offer physician users a quick and easy transition from their own practice management solutions to EMRs imminent.
The SequelMed Channel Partner Program is designed to help billing companies and other healthcare organizations ease the transition to EMRs without the need to undertake the cumbersome task of converting, revamping or removing their own practice management systems from existing physician sites. Instead, SequelMed’s unique e-Link technology enables Partners to seamlessly integrate practice management solutions with the SequelMed EMR. All charges entered into SequelMed EMR are uploaded automatically to e-Link with the click of a button, ensuring that the billing accompany is able to process charges instantly. In addition, physicians are able to scan and upload documents through e-Link for real-time information exchange. By allowing billing companies to retain their current practice management solutions, the SequelMed Channel Partner Program facilitates faster and smoother EMR adoption for physician customers and time and cost savings for Partners.
“As a SequelMed Channel Partner, we are able to help our physician users make the transition to a full-scale EMR system without needing to rip out existing technology investments,” said Kevin Doogue of Active Management Inc. “As a result, we are able to deliver greater value to our customers, build a more profitable relationship with physicians and gain competitive advantage among billing companies. We are extremely pleased with the initial results of our partnership and look forward to a long and successful collaboration with Sequel Systems.”

“The SequelMed Channel Partner Program centers on delivering a comprehensive EMR solution and enabling physicians to adopt electronic clinical documentation and patient charting more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before,” said Irfan Iqbal, director of medical informatics at Sequel Systems. “The result is a smooth transition for billing companies’ physician clients while delivering cost and time savings for our partners. With EMR initiatives at the forefront today, our Channel Partner Program allows billing companies to deliver added value to physician clients while increasing revenue and market share. This is just another way that Sequel is facilitating the adoption and use of EMRs as encouraged by the economic stimulus package.”
